getSTDtested.com GETS ‘Josh-REVIEWED’
Josh Robbins reviews getSTDtested.com
I have to admit that even though I am HIV-positive, and have been run through tons of HIV tests, needle pricks and oral swabs in my day (I’m 30!), I still get a bit nervous about actually going in to get an STD test. So, I contacted the amazingly friendly marketing and promotion team and informed them that I wanted to write a review of their product, service and website for my nifty new ISJ FAVES section of my HIV BLOG. They agreed. (Full disclosure– I am not being paid for this review, nor did I pay for the service rendered. With that said, it has no reflection in this honest review.)
What I desired was pretty simple & straightforward: I wanted to an easy STD test, not too expensive, privacy and confidentiality and reliable test results.
[pluslist]The first step [/pluslist]of utilizing their STD-testing product is to decide if you want to call their phone line: 866-322-7154 to order the STD tests or utilize their website- http://getstdtested.com. I optioned to call. The initial call resulted in about a 7 minute wait, but once I got connected to their representative, it was extremely easy to discuss what I wanted– which test or group of tests. I chose their most popular package:
[pluslist]The second step[/pluslist]was to decide what route to go: IN-HOME testing or IN-LAB testing. In order to get reliable results and the best package deal, I chose the IN LAB testing (it was a local Nashville lab) that I chose the location. There were several options. I decide on the testing option that had the most STD tests available. I chose the COMPLETE LAB TEST PACKAGE for HIV, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Oral Herpes, Genital Herpes, Syphilis, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C.
[pluslist]The third step [/pluslist]after payment* was to receive an email with simple instructions on where to go, with the papers that the lab would need in order to preform the test. And I could go anytime that I chose before the expiration, which was several months away.
[box_tip]Don’t forget to take the papers they email you to the lab, as it has the information needed to authorize the testing.[/box_tip]
[pluslist]Fourth step[/pluslist]was simply to head to the lab to perform the test. This was the easiest part. I chose a lab that I thought wouldn’t be too busy and I went at 2pm during the afternoon, and I was right. There was no line, nor wait. I signed in. Showed the front desk attendant the paperwork and they immediately took me back to the room. I got a quick couple of tubes of blood drawn and then off to the fun “pee-in-a-cup” room. Don’t forget to wash your hands afterwards, folks! (It’s a small cup.)
[pluslist]Finally, the fifth step[/pluslist]was after waiting 4-5 days, I received an email from getstdtested.com and I decided to call for
